PBT assessment: overall result

PBT status:
the substance is not PBT / vPvB
Justification:

The substance should be considered Toxic as it is classified as Carc. 2 and Reprotox. It is likely to be persistent as no biodegradation was observed in the screening test in water. However, there is indication that it can be quickly degraded by UV light (half life of 16 days in water and 5 days on solid surfaces).

The substance however should not be considered as PBT or vPvB since there is no evidence that bioaccumulation can occur. The log Kow is -1.39 which is well below the screening threshold and there is also evidence of rapid methabolism and excretion in rats.
